Conlan thrilled by boxing medal

Belfast boxer Michael Conlan guarantees himself a medal at the Olympics but insists that he won't be settling for bronze.

Conlan, 20, defeated France's Nordine Oubaali 22-18 in the quarter-finals to join John Joe Nevin and Katie Taylor in guaranteeing at least a bronze.

Another Belfast man Paddy Barnes boxes for a medal on Wednesday when he faces India's Devendro Laishram in the light-flyweight quarter-finals.

Conlan is the fourth Northern Ireland competitor to win a medal at the Games.
